Originally I had planned to do a Valentine's gift, but I fell behind on that score. But then Michelle opened an Etsy Shop, Lady Lexi Designs, so I thought a little good luck gift was in order to wish her well on this venture.
I decided to stitch this pretty pink flower from the Workbasket. You can find the pattern here. It seemed perfect for an Altoid tin top and I love the design. I had planned to put Michelle's initials on it, but then the shop name seemed like an even better idea. Actually, the shop is named after Michelle's dog, so may this is a tribute to her dog as well! It's stitched over-one on off-white Monaco.
To go inside, I crocheted a cute little pincushion sunburst granny square with #10 crochet cotton. I made two sunburst granny squares and joined them together through the back loop. There are two squares of blue felt underneath and some fiberfill inside. If you are a crocheter and want to make your own, you can find the instructions for the square here.
And hoping to provide a guardian angel, I included an adorable angel bead fob from Melanie's Moonraker Lampwerks. I hope the angel doesn't let us down!
I also included a pretty bookmark made from a design by Pelin Tezer. I don't see it online any longer. This was done on 14-count Aida, a piece that Michelle sent to me as a gift previously! It's very soft Aida and nice to work with.
